[I Need Romance 3/로맨스가 필요해 3] Sung Joon and Kim Soyeon at Cheongun-dong (Chungwoon-dong)

korean drama

Cheongun-dong (Chungwoon-dong)
Jahamun-roo 33-gagil, Cheongunhyoja-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul
(서울 종로구 청운효자동 자하문로33가길)


So, DyanHyungnim from Twitter asked me for help in finding that house of Kim Soyeon in the korean drama and I came up with this.
Well, it was quite difficult because at first, I thought it's in Samcheong-dong.
But she gave me a clue and linked me to this article which stated that it's indeed in the Cheongun-dong area.

But where exactly in Cheongun-dong?

Personally, I think Cheongun-dong is a big area, but most of its land are occupied by the Bugak Mountain, and several schools.
Through researches, can I conclude that there are only two major residential areas in the dong?
To try to see through my perception, look at this:

If we're to look closely, the Residential area #2 is not that big and confusing. There are just several streets you can walk on and so I looked for the area.

Until I found the area in the second picture above.

The area is not exactly secluded, but the maps won't show the roads.
I don't think it's because cars can get in there because the road's wide enough.
Maybe it's private? Who knows?

Here is a closer map:

Now what are the clues?

I'm not gonna lie and say I'm confident about this.
But I'm still giving you the directions should you wish to go there because Cheongun-dong is a beautiful place to explore.
Go for a walk. It's not that big.

I suggest you get a taxi. HAHA.
But if you wish to go on a nice walk, okay here goes uncertainty LOL

1. Get on Green bus #1711, 7016, or 7108, depending on where you're coming from. So there are two stops, naturally. The first one is when you rode a bus going to the Gwanghwamun area. The second one is when you rode a bus coming from the said place.

2. When you got off the bus, walk south until you get to the intersection beside the Seoul Chungwoon Elemetary School. And then the long walk begins.

3. Walk straight until you get to the area on the picture below. It will lead you to the secluded road I told you about (the one the casts normally take to the house).

 4. Just walk straight until you get here:

Again, I don't assure 100% accuracy. There maybe some discrepancies on the pictures too because the map shows pictures that were taken on early 2013. Who knows? There might have been lots of changes too.

Anyway, I hope I did good here.
It's up to you if you are taking the risk of following my directions okay?
